Even the minister smiled broadly. As her father gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his credit card. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Seven Mile Bridge, Florida _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A little boy and girl are playing in a sandbox. The little boy has to go to take a pee and he was told by his mother to always be polite and don't talk about private matters in public. At first he holds it in for a little while because he does not know what to say to the little girl to excuse himself. Then he remembers what his Mom had said at the restaurant to excuse herself from the table. So he turns to the little girl and says "Will you excuse me I have to go powder my nose". And saying that he leaps out of the sandbox and runs to the washroom. When he comes back the little girl looks up at him and asks "Did you powder your nose?" "Yes" said the little boy stepping back into the sandbox. "Well then" says the little girl, "You'd better close your purse because your lipstick is hanging out." ___________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Chloe Wright, 25, Taunton, Massachusetts Left wing extremist, chases down, rams car over Trump bumper sticker A Massachusetts man recently told police that earlier this week he was stopped at a red light when a woman pulled up behind him and began honking her horn in a belligerent manner. Then things really got crazy. He stated the driver then followed him down another road, still honking the horn and now screaming at him. And if you think things couldn’t get any nuttier, you’d be oh so wrong. They actually got worse. Way worse. “I could hear her screaming out of the car or something, so I’m like, ‘Man, maybe something’s wrong with my car,’” said the man identified by WBZ-TV only as “Brendan” for his safety. Well, apparently there was something wrong with his car — affixed upon it is a bumper sticker supporting President Donald Trump with his campaign slogan, “Make American Great Again.” Brendan added to the station that “the first thing she said when I came out of the car was, ‘Did you vote for Trump?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, what of it?’” With that, he told WBZ, the driver yelled, “You’re racist!” along with “a bunch of cuss words” coming at him “nonstop.” But that wasn’t the worst of it. Brendan recorded video of the incident as the driver first allegedly hit the back of his car then clipped his open door, missing him by inches, WBZ said. “Her tire was right next to my foot,” Brendan recalled to the station. “That could have ended really bad.” The driver promptly fled the scene when she noticed she was on video, however the video taken of the incident captured the vehicle’s license plate number, which was then traced to Chloe Wright of Taunton. Wright was arrested by authorities a month later on Monday and she has plead not guilty to a charge of assault with a deadly weapon. She will also be facing charges of vandalizing property and fleeing the scene of property damage. The woman was released on $1,250 bail and has been ordered to stay away from the victim.
Tech Support Pits From: Almira Re: Further into the dark Dear Webby I need to take pictures of graduates from a course that I teach. The last ones were a disaster. The flash does not light up the second and third row, and without a flash, the overhead lights are too dim and make the faces look haggard. I remember you occasionally making strong statements against the use of flash, but I forgot what alternatives you recommended. Can you please tell me again? Thanks Almira Dear Almira Go to Home Depot or a similar construction supplier, and get yourself one or two 500 W or 1000 W Quartz work lights. They are in rectangular cast aluminum fixtures just like yard and security lights, but have a much brighter lamp in it, and a safety grill in front of the glass. You can get them with a big alligator clamp to clip them onto a stepladder, or with a bright yellow tripod. Most photographers take that tripod out into the back alley and use a can of black barbecue paint to give it an expensive and professional look. However, that is a stupid idea. It just causes people to trip over the tripod legs. There is a good reason why it is bright yellow. Position the light a bit to the side of your spot and closer to the group or podium. Put your camera on a tripod and make sure that the light is just barely outside your cone of view. The older the crowd, the lower down the light should be. A knee high spotlight hides more wrinkles than a pound of make-up spackled on, but make sure the light is a bit to the side and not straight in front of your camera. Set the camera for 1/30 second or if it is an automatic, use the symbol of a person with a star above the head. To take the picture, hold up a manual flash with your left hand and set it off. Click the camera a second later, when they just start to relax, but before they let their chests fall back down into their drawers. It would be a good idea to take some test pictures beforehand. Absolutely REFUSE to take pictures if tehre is a white background. Pictures will turn out crappy with the faces all looking haggard. Background should be as black as possible. Also tell the people to NOT wear white. Cameras tend to average brightness, and white dresses cause dark and haggard faces in group pictures. Have FUN DearWebby

A flight attendant was on the red-eye to Manila when a water leak developed in the galley, which eventually soaked the carpet throughout the cabin of the 747. A very sleepy passenger who had become aware of the dampness asked the attendant, "Has it been raining?" Keeping a straight face, the attendant replied, "Yes, but we put the top up." With a sigh of relief, the passenger went back to sleep.

I had given our daughter, who was 15 at the time, a drivers manual. On the way to town one day, I was coaching her as I drove. I told her to be studying her book so as to be ready when it came time to get her driver's permit. "Oh, she said, "I already know everything in the book." "You do?" I returned. "Yep," she said, very smugly. I thought, "OK, I'll give her a hard one." So I asked her, "How many feet does it take to stop the car if you are driving 60 miles an hour and have to slam on the brakes real hard?" "One," she replied. "What?" I asked. "One?!" She repeated her answer and then because of the confused look on my face, she added, "One, Mom. You always told me never to use my left foot on the brakes, only use my right one." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Air Out the House With summer here, open up windows when you use caustic cleaners. Opening up various windows and doors will help air circulate throughout the house and help freshen everything. An even better approach is to avoid these type of fumes by using cleaners like baking soda and vinegar. Tip provided by ____________________________________________________

As store owners ran outside to see what happened, they spotted the pharmacist staggering out of his smoldering building. His white uniform was scorched black. He walked up to a woman standing nearby and said, "Lady! Would you please ask your doctor to write that prescription again. And this time, PRINT IT!" ___________________________________________________
